Nancy--does this look familiar? We did this as an Internet exchange in 2001 or so. We each did a block or blocks for each other in each row and each row had some meaning related to quilting and the internet. There were 2 groups going and our group chose to use batiks.
So that's the news from me! :) It's hard to report anything when you are just sitting around relaxing and reading. I did start working about an hour a day on my reversible quilt, so not much to show on that quilt.
My back was doing great until a few days ago when floating in the lazy river, a bunch of kids swam under us and one of them kicked me right on my nerve. I shot out of the inner tube like a cannon. The pain was excrutiating and I lost control of my leg for a bit. Of course the kid didn't stop or even look back. In the meantime, I hobble out of the lazy river, trying not to cry. It definitely was a set back, but I'm doing better. My husband talked to my doctor and I'm going to do one more epidural shot when I return home next week. I was hoping all this lazing around would help me avoid that! Oh well...if it helps. The first one did help a lot. I'm just waiting for 100% recovery. I'm not complaining much--there are so many others that suffer much more than I am and I just don't know how they do it. So for those of you who suffer daily from whatever ailment..my prayers and sympathies go out to you! I WILL be better!
